Another explosive Politiburo meeting penned for Thursday

Another explosive Politiburo meeting penned for Thursday

Published: 10 November 2014

HARARE – The Zanu-pf Politburo will meet on Thursday with another hot debate expected on proposed amendments to the revolutionary party’s constitution.

Clarity will be sought on the proposed alignment of the party’s constitution with the Unity Accord and the national Constitution on how the two vice presidents assume their posts.

Zanu-pf Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa confirmed the meeting, but declined to disclose issues that would be on the agenda. “We are meeting on Thursday and as usual you will be briefed by (Rugare) Gumbo,” he said. “Musandinetse vanhu imi.”

A source said amendments to the party’s constitution would take centre stage.“Remember, last time there were senior officials who wanted a selective amendment of Clause 32 of the party constitution which deals with the number of Central Committee members and election of Second Secretaries and the national chairman,” said the source.

“The Politburo has since resolved to increase the number of Central Committee members, but there is a group advocating for the clause to be amended in entirety, which makes sense.

“One group, which was for the increase of Central Committee members does not want amendment of the section on election of second secretaries and national chairman.” There is also a growing lobby that the party amends a provision in its constitution that allows 10 senior officials to automatically become Politburo members without Presidential appointment.

The 10 positions that automatically get Politburo status are the two Vice-Presidents and Second Secretaries, the National Chair, the deputy secretary of the Women’s League and her five most senior officials, and the deputy secretary of the Youth League.

Another source said the party’s constitution should be amended because not all senior officials were appointees, a situation that has seen them creating their own centres of power and fanning factionalism. “These non-appointed officials are creating their own centres of power, which results in factionalism that manifested itself in vote-buying, violence, intimidation and general disloyalty to the President,” said the source.

Other issues that will be discussed include the rules and guidelines for the election of Central Committee members and other logistical issues relating to the National People’s Congress set for December. The Politburo is also expected to be briefed by various committees for congress preparations. About $8 million is needed to successfully host the congress in Harare from December 2 to 7.

zbc state t-shirts
Njabulo{my comment ,my opinion in a democratic world}Editor your analyses is greatly appreciated ,but know that all state controlled media is subject to favour the government of the day.For
example ,BBC is bound by the policies of the UK government.It acts as a
mouth piece of the government.Its interest is biased towards the
state.The state has the prerogative to dictate as what should be
published and not to be published.Lest BBC publishes or broadcast
information which could outrage the public or endanger the public and/or
incite the public to militate against the government(cause a
revolution)..So you see that it is common in all countries to use the
state media by the state as a propaganda tool.In this case ,there is
nothing wrong for ZBC personnel to wear T-shirts with symbols of the
state.During the two world wars,the Jews were persecuted by the state
media in Germany.During the Zimbambwe and South African wars of
liberation ,the respective state media was/were used by the then
government to further their draconian policies.I rest my case my

On this day, 2 years ago, our youngest son, Tyler Jack was born.  Tyler’s entire journey from even when I was pregnant until he was about 1, has been eventful to say the least.  A few heartbreaking and anxious times but all in all, everything that happened has made him into the little man that he is today and I honestly wouldn’t change anything for the world. (For anyone who wants to read his journey, here’s the link: )

It’s also interesting to note that one person in particular had made several “unneighborly” comments regarding other members of the neighborhood without any response from the board, but yet the group was shut down when other people began to respond to those comments.

As a Canadian who follows American politics, and sometimes writes about it on my blog, I agree with your sentiment: hope always beats its opposite for high political office, notably in America. The winning candidate will generate the greatest message of hope; whether he can deliver is another matter.
